New Arc Flash Standards (IEEE 1584)
May 22 23, 2019
Venue:Hilton Garden Inn Spokane Airport
Spokane, WA 99224
Fee(s):This event has a fee
Who Should Attend:
Electric utility engineering managers, engineers, and others responsible for developing arc flash standards and/or studies for their utility.
The latest Arc Flash edition of IEEE 1584 is a major game changer; almost everything has changed since the original 2002 edition was introduced.
This two-day course provides in-depth techniques for designers and facility operators to assess the hazards in the work place; determine the arc flash hazard distance and the incident energy to which employees could be exposed; select/apply the correct personal protective equipment; and document all assessments.
This course covers the following aspects of the latest edition:
- Five different electrode configurations to enable more detailed modeling:
- Vertical electrodes in a metal box/enclosure – VCB (also in 2002 Edition)
- Vertical electrodes terminated in an insulating barrier in a metal box/enclosure – VCCB
- Horizontal electrodes in a metal box/enclosure – HCB
- Vertical electrodes in open air – VOA (also in 2002 Edition)
- Horizontal electrodes in open air – HOA
- More choices for enclosure types and sizes
- Enclosure correction factor calculations to adjust for specific enclosure sizes
- Calculations for arcing current variation factors
- Voltage equations and interpolation to actual voltages
- Elimination of the differences between grounded vs. ungrounded
- Elimination of the 125 kVA transformer exception
